Motorola Moto g10 and Moto g30 go head-to-head (review)

The Motorola Moto g10 and Moto g30 have a $50 worth distinction, so this can be a head-to-head assessment to see if the additional for the g30 is obligatory. Aside from a unique Qualcomm processor and digicam, they’re virtually an identical twins.

We begin with the assertion from Motorola Australia

“Motorola is extra dedicated than ever to pushing boundaries. Our Motorola 2021 e-and-g sequence embody our mission to carry distinctive worth and excellent options to Australians”.

First impression – one other glass slab

The Moto g10 and Moto g30 look comparable – sorry, Moto, however nothing is thrilling a couple of 6.5”, 1600×720 cellphone. These are huge black slabs – the g10 is 180g, and the g30 is 200g.

Each include a rear fingerprint sensor (the place it needs to be), a digicam bump high left (the place its too straightforward to put a finger over when capturing in panorama), a 3.5mm combo port (nice) and clear TPU bumper covers – it saves you shopping for a canopy.

So, no – other than g10’s Aurora Gray and Sakura Pearl and g30’s Phantom Black or Pastel Sky – these are glass slabs.

And at that worth, it’s the standard, not a flowery paint job, that counts.
